Learning Standards for Health, Physical Education, and Home Economics. Revised Edition.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This document contains three learning standards for health, physical education, and home economics at three levels: elementary, intermediate, and commencement. The first section consists of these three standards: (1) personal health and fitness, (2) a safe and healthy environment, and (3) resource management. The format for displaying the standards includes the following: key ideas regarding the standard; performance indicators describing expectations for students and designated for one of the three levels; and sample tasks suggesting evidence of progress toward the standard at a given level. A key idea is provided for each area: health, physical education, and home economics. Select sample tasks are followed by an asterisk indicating their appropriateness for inclusion in a student's career plan. The second section provides samples of student work that are intended to begin the process of articulating the performance standards at each level of achievement. Each sample indicates level, type of student work, context, performance indicators, commentary, and scoring guide. (YLB)
